shootings in Tulsa, Okla.; 3 killedUPDATE
All five victims are black, and black community leaders met Friday evening in an effort to calm unrest and promote safety. NAACP Tulsa president, the Rev. Warren Blakney Sr., told the Tulsa World (http://bit.ly/... ) someone appeared to be "targeting black people to shoot."
Four shooting victims were found in yards, and the fifth in a street. Police identified those killed as Dannaer Fields, 49, Bobby Clark, 54, and William Allen, 31. Fields was found wounded about 1 a.m. Friday, Clarke was found in a street about an hour later, and Allen was discovered in the yard of a funeral home about 8:30 a.m.
Minutes after Fields was found, police found two men with gunshot wounds in another yard two blocks away. They were taken to hospitals in critical condition but expected to survive, police said. Their names have not been released.
CNNThe injustice of the Trayvon murder seems to have been a wink and a nod to some of the hateful prejudiced wingnuts.
"We're not absolutely certain, but a hate crime is a possibility. And we'll go with where the investigation leads us," he said.
All of the victims are black. The suspected shooter is a white male and is believed to be traveling in a white truck, said Brooks.
And the Media IMHO has a lot to do with this.
The Tea Party Birthers and Republicans should be held accountable.
My heart feels heavy that racism is still so rampant.
